Mixing with those who use prohibited items

Q: My family's relationship with our relatives and neighbors make them watch television in their houses; some of my children even go to watch it secretly. Am I considered a sinner if I buy a television and put it at home, while monitoring my family and teaching them what is useful and what is harmful? Please advise, may Allah grant you success. I am confused whether buying it is Halal (lawful) or Haram (prohibited).

A: Mixing with those whom a person has to visit and share prohibited deeds is not permissible, and being alone is better than sitting with bad companions.A Muslim should keep themselves and their families away from evil to protect their religion. Every guardian is responsible for their charges; if they perform their duty, they will be safe, whereas if they neglect monitoring their families, they will have committed a sin.May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
